Just a nice place to spend some time and relax, go on boat or feed the ducks, watch some outdoors shows or just go around the park talking - park is equally suited for any of this.

If you want to spend an afternoon in a beautiful park with a uniquely Chinese feel, this is a good place to stop. If you go, be prepared to walk... a lot. It's a wonderful place to walk, though, with a lake and lots of pretty things to see. There is a temple inside the park, which looks very distinct... More

Great place for a walk and some interesting attractions but possibly a little time consuming if time in Beijing is limited

Lovely park in which to enjoy a leisurely stroll.One of the lakes was frozen over and it was great to watch people having a great time skating. We were there at sunset and it was beautiful to watch the sun go down over the lake.

Beihai was a chance to see how Beijingers spent leisure time...

This is a great place for an evening stroll. While there are lots of people in there, it does not feel crowded. Plus you get to see a famous Beijing Landmark up close.

This park is nice, if you have spare hour or so i would recommend a quick and walk around. It is a nice break from the cramped and busy lift style of Beijing.
